I don't want to mince words here , this looks like a vagina and that's what makes the image so breathtaking. Just goes to show this artists raw talent. You don't need an expensive camera to take a brilliant photograph! I personally have never seen anything like this before. I would have guessed this was taken with a macro lens on a digital slr. Brilliant, using a scanner! Gives a much better effect. This has allowed for the slight folding of the outer petals and the varying degrees of line and color create to create an image that smacks of female sexuality. Wonderful work!
